U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan announced a third round of grants for more than 250 homeless housing and service programs across the U.S., as well as nearly 200 grants to assist with local strategic planning activities provided through HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. This is the final round of funding announcements in the FY2012 CoC Program Competition and includes funding for housing, services, HMIS, and CoC planning projects. This year, HUD challenged local communities to reexamine their response to homelessness and give greater weight to proven strategies, from providing ‘rapid re-housing’ for homeless families to permanent supportive housing for those experiencing chronic homelessness.
The $57 million in grants announced today support a range of new programs, including projects to create and implement systems to make the use of homeless services more efficient, and more than 1,900 new permanent supportive housing beds for chronically homeless persons. The new projects were largely the result of local strategic decisions that resulted in the reallocation of funds from existing renewal projects that were no longer critically needed in favor of creating new programs to help the community achieve the goal of ending homelessness. Earlier this year, HUD awarded more than $1.6 billion in the first two rounds of grant funding to renew support for more than 7,500 local programs.
